The Role of the Parent in Sports
FREE COURSE!

In the Role of the Parent in Sports, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has provided information and resources to help educate you on the importance of proper behavior by parents in school sports and the role you must play to ensure your child has a positive sport experience. Coaches can complete a course immediately and will have up to one year to review and access all printable resources. As a parent of a student who participates in athletics, you make a huge difference in the quality of your child's sport experience, as well as what is being taught and learned by our youth.
Fundamentals of Coaching and First Aid for Coaches provide coaches with content from all eight domains contained in the National Standards for Sport Coaches (NASPE 2006). These two courses form the foundation from which all elective courses and sport-specific courses are developed. Core courses should be completed first to give the coach a better understanding of elective and sport-specific courses.
